Some issues are just more complex than we want them to be…
“One of the ways you can tell that your kids are just borrowing your faith is if they never ask questions.” ~ Natasha Crain
“If it was God’s desire to provide us with an accurate and reliable account of the life of Jesus, an account we could trust and recognize as consistent with other forms of eyewitness testimony, God surely accomplished it with the four gospel accounts. Yes, the accounts are messy. They are filled with idiosyncrasies and personal […]
“I’m alarmed sometimes when I hear Christians make inaccurate statements related to the nature of evidence. When discussing evidence with skeptics, we don’t need to concede that a particular fact related to the Christian worldview is not a piece of evidence simply because it is not a piece of direct evidence.

It may not always feel like it, but God does care about what we go through.
Does having faith in God mean that we can never question Him?
What real evidence do you have that God exists? Science clearly proves that there is no God. All of that stuff in the Bible is just fantasy.
